Niantic published a blog explaining daily bonuses, a forthcoming feature designed to keep Pokemon Go coming back to catch em all and then some.
"Trainers will soon be able to receive a bonus for certain daily activities, including catching a Pokemon or visiting a PokéStop once a day," the developer explained. "You’ll earn a larger bonus if you do this seven days in a row."
As a way to engage players, the tasks go beyond surface-level requirements like opening the app every so often.
- Catching a Pokemon will net you 500 XP and 600 Stardust
- Catch Pokemon for seven days straight to receive 2000 XP and 2400 Stardust
- Make daily visits to PokeStops, and spinning the Photo Disc, adds 500 XP and an assortment of extra items to your inventory
- Hit up a PokeStop every day for seven consecutive days, and you'll earn 2000 XP and even more items
"If you catch a Pokemon at any time on Tuesday local time, you’ll be eligible for the next daily bonus on Wednesday at 12 AM local time," Niantic wrote.
